Way Ahead: Prominent Australians Talk /Byrski, Liz/Paper/1864363452/S049-E1
As we head towards 2000, what sort of nation have we become and where are we headed? How can we prepare for the new century and who will lead us across the threshold? Liz Byrski discusses these hotly debated national issues with more than twenty prominent Australians who share their hopes and fears for the future of our nation.
From Eva Cox's "connective glue of society", and Phillip Adams' "invasion of technology" to bob Ellis' "tyranny of economic rationalism" and Robyn Nevin's hopes for a republic, The Way Ahead provides challenging perspectives on Australian life and calls for the courage to change.
"On New Year's Eve, we look at the year that has gone and at the year ahead...and make resolutions for next year...as we come to the threshold of the new century...that's what we should be doing now." - Peter Ellyard.
"We should be aiming to be a role model of racial tolerance, gender equality, multiculturalism, strong ethics, a free, fair and democratic society." - Poppy King.
